Licence file question
« on: January 31, 2010, 05:02:16 PM »
Hi Awil Team :)

As mentioned before I decided to go for the 50% discount offer for AV Pro users to upgrade to AIS for 3 PC's. I just bought a licence because it is the last day the offer is available ;) Now I have 2 questions :

- I received a licence.dat file. Should I change it from a .dat file to a .avastlic file, or is there maybe another procedure for the upgrade ???

- Is it OK that I activate/upgrade in about 1 a 2 weeks when I have more time ??? ( I know the license is valid from the day of purchase and not the day of activation, but that's no real problem with a 3 years licence ;) )

Greetz, Red.

Act in haste repent at leisure, changing the file type could result in the file not passing any validation and bang goes your license file. I would be talking to sales (at) avast.com before I did anything.

Hi DavidR :)

You are right, there is no hurry :) I have 2 AV Pro licences ( 1 year and 3 years ) from witch I want to upgrade the 1 year licence ( and keep the 3 years licence as it is ;) ) Better to contact sales first indeed :)

The 50% discount offer is an upgrade offer for only the AV Pro users. But you can find it here :
